Small place open late, and they are very helpful at moving the line along. Big, big slice of tasty pizza for $3.50. Cash only. We were drunk and it was good!

The pizza here is pretty good. I think the thing about it is the large slice. It's huge! $3.50 a slice but they only serve cheese except on Tuesday. I've had better but if you're in Philly you gotta try it.

Listen, there's a lot of talk over which of the hundreds (thousands, maybe) of pizza places in Philly has the best pizza. And there are a lot of great pizzas in Philly. But I can tell you that, bar none, Lorenzo and Sons has the absolute best pizza in the city. Period. There is nothing better. I have taken many... More

Lorenzo's is an absolute must-go if you're in Philly and looking for pizza. In my opinion, most "tourist" type of pizza places are not very good and are kind of a "just for the experience" kind of place (kind of like Pat and Geno's). Yet, Lorenzo's actually has great pizza. The slices are absolutely huge and they're delicious. The atmosphere... More

If this is the one on South Street in Phila then you must go and have a slice just to say you were at Lorenzos. BiG slice and cheesy. Standing room only in back or get a whole one and take out. We have the driver take us there on the way home from the airport sometimes. Check it out.

This place serves great pizza, period. That's all they do, on a slice by very large slice basis. It's fantastic pizza. Recently reopened after a devastating fire, this place is a jewel on South Street. We travel 16 miles from our house when we get the urge for a slice of Lorenzo's. You have to try this pizza, you will... More

A great slice of pizza is a beautiful thing to eat and Lorenzo's does it to near perfection. This is no wimp slice of pie covering two plates and I would guess it to be 8" across and 14" long. The crust is just right to fold (the only way to eat a big slice) and the cheeses are such... More

We stopped here for a slice of pizza on a day trip in Philly. This was the biggest piece of pizza I have ever had! It covered the entire plate. It was so big I had to eat it off the edge of the plate. This is Mr. Traveler's favorite pizza spot in Philly (he grew up nearby) and he... More
